« Part 19: Drilling holes for shelf supports. Part 20 of Torque Workcentre at work.. series Part 21: Jig for Horizontal Boring... »

Yes folks the big day has arrived… We are proud to announce the first dealers of the Torque Workcentre in the U.S.of A.
The machine was sent to Denver, Colorado last month, to be featured on the Cool Tools show.. Stuart Lees of Stu's Shed went over to demostrate the machine and from what I have heard had an absolute blast… Working with Chris Grundy would have been an experience not to be missed … nor is a trip to Rockler… we don’t have them here….
Our first dealer in the US… Kent Shepherd of SRS Tools & Supply, out of Lubbock Texas…. drove up to Denver to pick up the machine yesterday or maybe the day before and is on his way back to Lubbock..
Be one of the first to see this machine first hand … drop in and say hi to Kent or Greg…
For those on the East Coast… we have another Dealer … Lisa Currier from Quilted Wood in Connecticut…
Contact details are as follows..

SRS Tool & Supply
Kent Shepherd
Fax 806-687-4950
8116 W. 19th
Lubbock, TX 79407
[email protected]
Contacts…Greg or Kent



We also have

Lisa Currier
Quilted Wood
[email protected]
860 705 0549



There are a few more that we are in negotiations with… so stay tuned.

The Torque Workcentre will be available in two configurations..

The first will be a 2.0 metre bench with a 900 mm arm… and all the attachments [drill, saw, copy and dust shroud]

The second will be the same as the first but with a 3.0 metre bed.

These packages have been specially priced to be significantly lower than buying all the accessories individually…

Please contact the above dealers for pricing and a quote for transport within the United States..

I echo Davids good wishes Larry, Lisa and Kent. It seems to me that this thingy will save a lot of space in the shop so with all the complaints about our shops being too small it is sure to be a winner.

I’m Back——Just got to the store a few minutes ago, and am in the process of unloading the Torque.
Boy am I tired. It was a fast trip to Denver, which is about a 10 hour drive from Lubbock. Pulling a 16” enclosed trailer in the mountains is grand. Look for a blog a little later today.

I really hope to make you all jealous.

Good luck with the Torque Center sales in the US.

With my experience in the shop I can see the value and potential of this machine.
